The mattresses were old and terrible. this place is very old. Someone next door sounded like they were bouncing a ball off the wall.

Absolutely the worst Room we have stayed in for the amount of money we paid. The shower has no water pressure and barely any lukewarm water. There is no microwave. The little refrigerator is probably older than I am. Cobwebs in the window the Room smells like mildew and mold, the beds are the old 1970s Spring bed that our kids used to jump on. No breakfast. No pool. I understand covid is going on, but do a better bag breakfast, not just yogurt and a granola bar. Or greatly reduce the $120 a night rate. So not worth it. I will not be back

You have the wrong hotel.. We have the largest pool in Mackinaw and it is open until 10 PM. We have a Grab n- Go Breakfast due to the Corona Virus and social distancing regulations. Most of our rooms have new pillow top mattresses in them. If you stayed here let the office know of your questions/concerns and she would have taken care of them.

The shower/tub was so slow it filled up while taking a shower. I got in first and took a shower and the tub was not clean because it was slimy like someone went in and washed off tons of sunblock. It was nasty. My wife went in and cleaned it before she got in to use it and got rid of the slime but the drain still didn't let the water flow out properly. The window/wall heater worked half the time and about halfway through the night, it got pretty cold. There must have been some pretty good food for breakfast because it was standing room only ON THE OUTSIDE so we left and went to a restaurant 60 miles away. It was quicker.

When I had issues the staff did try to fix it not in a timely matter but they did try to fix it. The stairs needed to be fixed and the rooms were big but needed to be updated. The breakfast needs more of a variety... but the staff was courteous and like I stated they did want to make things right on their time not when needed.

The room was disgusting ... ants, stained/dirty bedding, rust all over in the bathtub because the faucet doesn’t shut off.

Nice big room but not the cleanest. Desk guy was rude at check in. Nothing worked correctly including the air. Rotted wood everywhere including stairs that were a hazard.

We have stayed at this property over the years. It has become a bit run down. The staff was very pleasant but when we got to our room there was a leak from the ceiling and water all over the floor. They did give us a suite which was very much appreciated. The suite was very nice very clean. Breakfast was very disappointing they weren’t able to keep up there wasn’t much of an offering.
